Taunting Donut is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2008 by Kalev Tait.
You play as a prisoner and test subject, resigned to your fate. Today's meal is a donut tied to the ceiling, way out of reach. Must be another test. Can you get that taunting donut?
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
